Those family albums inspired the title of the record you are holding in your hands or playing on your stereo right now. It’s something that has, in a way, been a lifetime in the making - even if it was just an idea to file away for the future. We may not have come from a musical family but we’ve made it a musical family, and a brother and sister who love to sing together really ought to make a record. An incredibly talented group of musicians and sound engineers enabled us to realize our vision and have a great time doing it, and the result is the album now before you: The Family Album. We hope you enjoy it.

Genre: Jazz, Vocal Jazz, Pop, Folk | Label: Baudelaire

At first listen, Halifax, Nova Scotia-based singer/songwriter Jill Barber sounds like merely the latest in a lineage that stretches back at least as far as her fellow Canadian Joni Mitchell. Her debut album For All Time is a familiar blend of folk, country, soft rock, and occasional torchy jazz influences, along with one oddball ringer, the Melanie-style Tin Pan Alley throwback (complete with tootling clarinet!) "When I'm Makin' Love to You." That playful tune is an early indication that Barber isn't interested in being just the next Norah Jones, and closer listens reveal a stronger talent…

Vocalist/pianist Patricia Barber's 25-year career has been brilliantly marked by a complete unwillingness to compromise her approach to music. She exists in that uncharted creative realm where she successfully defies classification as a purveyor of any particular musical movement or genre. On this live recording, assembled from her Monday night appearances at Chicago's Green Mill, Barber displays her impressive piano command and unique approach to the standards as well as her finely-crafted original compositions. This is "Digital only" release!

An imaginative mixture of the popular and the unusual. Barber’s only quartet has at its heart the famous Adagio for Strings: the latter is an arrangement of the second of the quartet’s two movements. That Adagio – which here benefits not only from the unfamiliarity of the chamber original but also from the Duke’s sensitively understated approach on their first recording for Collins Classics – is here surrounded by some captivating faster music (including a brief return to the opening Molto allegro’s ideas). And Robert Maycock’s excellent booklet notes hint at what those famous seven minutes of slow, sad passion in particular could really be said to be about: young homosexual love in the Austrian woods. Thirty years later, in 1966, another American in Europe, and still in his twenties, wrote his first string quartet, though it’s unlikely to be a direct reflection of love, this time in Paris.

Matthew Locke was the most prominent English musician of the generation before Purcell, occupying a unique place between the Renaissance consort tradition and Baroque chamber music. The Broken Consort refers to a group with mixed instruments, and Locke's pieces entertained royalty with their ambitiously chromatic tonal language and rhythmic quirkiness.

Musicality and variety is awesome! I gave this only 3 stars because the first 5 songs are the only new ones. All remaining songs are on his recording "The Heart of Christmas" – which I also have. They're not even new versions of the (same) songs – sound identical to the other recording. It's very frustrating to buy a recording and think you're getting all new songs, only to learn that they filled it with songs already released. If you like Matthew West and don't have any of his Christmas music, I highly recommend this. If you already have some, just be cautious that you're not buying what you already have..

Nightports was established by musician-producers Adam Martin (based in Leeds) and Mark Slater (Hull), and Nightports w/Matthew Bourne is the first of a series of collaborative albums to be released by The Leaf Label. Material for the album was recorded at Bourne's home outside Keighley, West Yorkshire, and at Besbrode Pianos in Leeds. The recordings coax hitherto unheard sounds from a range of contrasting instruments - decrepit dusty uprights holding their own against the attack and precision of a modern concert grand. The lines between the source material and the manipulations are seamless, delivering an unexpected percussive drive and emotional impact.
